My fantasy Christmas list

I am hoping that not too many of you would disagree with me when I say that I am not a superficial person at all – for me, Christmas is about relaxing and having fun with family and friends, as well as all of the little things that make Christmas special; good food, something warm to drink, getting cosy in PJs and slippers and days spent doing nothing but watching Christmas films under a blanket. Although I have an Amazon wishlist and have blogged my Christmas list, I find much more enjoyment in giving presents than receiving, in fact it’s surprising people get to Christmas Day without being forced to open presents as I really do get very excited at seeing people open the things I’ve bought (or made) them.

So I guess I’m going completely against those statements when I reveal that I may have allowed myself a little daydream moment earlier in compiling my fantasy Christmas list.  This is my ‘my Dad is an oil tycoon’ or ‘my boyfriend won the lottery’ Christmas list.  Or even my ‘I wisely invested in stocks and shares and am going to blow it all on myself’ Christmas list.  Because when I fantasise about the times I’ll be spending the festive period sipping mulled wine in a Christmas market, it’s only right that I allow myself a fleeting image of me doing so wearing a cashmere blend Burberry trench coat, right? With all my saving for the wedding (even though there’ll be another Christmas before we get married), Tom and I have set a limit on our buying for each other so we don’t go too crazy when there’s other things to save for.  But if we weren’t, and if money was no object, I might just hope that Santa brought me some Louboutin bridal shoes, aren’t they pretty? And I might start another separate little savings pot for that Gucci watch…
